Workplace injuries can come out of nowhere. When you suffer an injury on the job, you deserve to have the time and money you need to recover successfully. However, your employer’s and insurance company’s interests may be at odds with what you need to fully heal.
Our attorneys understand how challenging it can be to seek workers’ compensation and we know how to navigate those challenges successfully. You deserve to rest and recover with peace of mind, and we can help you pursue the payout you deserve.
What Can Workers’ Compensation Benefits Cover?
If you’re hurt on the job, workers’ comp can cover things like:
- Lost wages: You can typically receive around 66.67% of your gross weekly earnings. However, this can depend on the state, as they can set their own limits for how much you receive.
- Medical costs: There is a broad umbrella of medical services workers’ comp can cover. Those can include emergency room visits, hospital stays, physical therapy, surgeries and other forms of care.
- Ongoing treatment: Depending on the severity of your injury, workers’ comp can also cover any ongoing treatment you need, even if you have mostly recovered.
- New occupation training: If your injury is severe enough that you can no longer work your previous job, workers’ comp may be able to pay for some schooling or occupational training to help you get a different job.
Workers’ comp benefits can ease the pain and pressure of getting the support you need. However, obtaining them isn’t always easy – that’s where we can help. Call 251-243-7872 to begin working on your claim today.
How Long Do You Have To File A Workers’ Comp Claim?
The amount of time you have to file a workers’ compensation claim can depend on which state you live in. Here in Alabama, the statute of limitations is typically around two years from the date of the injury. Workers in Mississippi and Florida also have two years from the date of their injury to pursue a claim.
While these are typically the norm, there can be exceptions to these rules. If you’re worried it’s too late to file a claim, don’t panic. Speak with one of our lawyers to learn if you meet any qualifying circumstances.
We Can Help Keep Things On Track
No matter how mild or severe your injury is, we can help keep your claim on track. You don’t have to suffer through unreported injuries, missing pay for days off or improper medical treatment. You can take control of your workers’ compensation claim from the start. We can help you at the beginning of your claim when uncertain or if insurers reject your initial claim. Some people don’t think they need an attorney if their injury isn’t severe – not true. Your injury could get worse if you don’t receive proper treatment. You need an advocate who can make the case for why you need these benefits.
